Hello and welcome to my web-page, here you will find information about myself, my writing, and my editing projects. Below you can read the most recent news regarding my fiction appearances.
I began my writing career in late 2006, my major inspirations being the writer H.P. Lovecraft and other weird fiction authors. My major writing output is Cthulhu Mythos fiction, horror, cyberpunk and some fantasy. I have written over a 150 short stories, many of which have been published in England, America, Japan and France. As well as writing, I edit fiction anthologies and write material for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. I can be contacted by email here.
Now available to order from Amazon!

Through a Mythos Darkly [hardcover] edited by Glynn Owen Barrass & Brian M. Sammons
Available now from PS Publishing!
In this Cthulhu Mythos inspired anthology, editors Glynn Owen Barrass & Brian M. Sammons invited their authors to ‘Take a steampunk world, fill it with giant steam powered robots, and have them herding shoggoths for the ‘betterment’ of mankind. Have them rebel, and have do-gooders set about trying to free them. Fill a world with Deep Ones or Ghouls, or create a world where magic is a part of everyday life, or where America was never discovered because something kept eating the ships, or the Nazis won WWII thanks to outside influences. Perhaps the Chinese built the Great Wall to keep something out other than Mongol hordes.’
So, how did they do? Fantastically of course!

NOW AVAILABLE! The Children of Gla’aki: A Tribute to Ramsey Campbell’s Great Old One edited by Brian M. Sammons & Glynn Owen Barrass
It can be purchased direct from the publisher, as an ebook or trade paperback, and soon available as a deluxe hardcover.
There is a lake in the Seven Valley, near a town called Brichester. It is an eerie, haunted place, both by day and by night. Night especially though, is a time when no one in their right mind would go anywhere near it, or those oddly deserted houses that stand, albeit barely, on the edge of the shore. But why? What is it that moves about in that lake, a thing that makes its presence known with three sinister glowing eyes that protrude from beneath the water?
Some believe it is an entity that traveled to Earth, many thousands of years ago inside a hollow meteor.
Ramsey Campbell, Nick Mamatas, John Goodrich, Robert M. Price, Pete Rawlik, W.H. Pugmire, Edward Morris, Scott R. Jones, Thana Niveau, William Meikle, Orrin Grey, Tom Lynch, Konstantine Paradias, Josh Reynolds, Lee Clarke Zumpe, and Tim Waggoner, these are, The Children of Gla’aki.
